Improving Field Worker Safety by Enhancing Visibility
During the recent Safety Summit, a discussion evolved regarding the implementation of active lighting on safety PPEs. This lead to an investigation by Amjad Obeid into a limited pilot program in District 11. After initial positive feedback, Amjad tested the device in District 3, 4 and 7 for a larger sample size. After a successful pilot in those districts resulting in more positive feedback, it was decided to implement statewide. The statewide rollout of Illumagear's HALO SL provides a 360° flood light that illuminates the surrounding area at roughly eye level.
